Trust us when we say that this isn't your everyday fruit dessert. This week's Most Popular Pin of the Week (pictured above) starts with juicy, fresh strawberries and transforms them with an ingredient sidekick: balsamic vinegar. Not just for your salad dressings, this tangy vinegar turns sweet and syrupy when reduced, and offers a welcome bite when paired with the berries. Serve the strawberries atop smooth vanilla-laced ricotta cheese for a cool, creamy treat that's surprisingly healthy (yes, really).
